Use [broadcast_list] or [single_broadcast] shortcodes anywhere to show your visitors list of avaliable broadcasts or some single broadcast


Page with single Broadcast not displaying correctly

You need to set up Add HTML markup for opening page wrappers and Add HTML markup for closing page wrappers options at WP-Admin -> Settings -> vpBroadcast Lite.

To loacte this wrappers – you need to open in editor template page.php or index.php from your theme. Next you need to find the loop. The loop usually starts with a:

<?php if ( have_posts() ) :

and usually ends with:

<?php endif; ?>

But this varies between themes. Opening and closing wrappers – it’s HTML markup before and after these code parts.

If you can’t correctly setup opening and closing page wrappers – you may use shortcode [single_broadcast] to display your broadcast at any post or page.
